I am finishing my degree through Ashford University's Online College Program. Have you ever taken your degree online.? Right now I am Intro to Logic. Anyone ever taken this course? What do you think of it?

What I like about it is you can get your degree and beyond before you start paying back for the loans provided. The only out of pocket is your books. I hear that it's even less expensive to purchase the books required by the online version. With me I have a new course every 5 weeks..we read quite a few chapters each week and pack 12 weeks into 5 week spaces.

Hi! I have a very busy schedule but I also want to study for a higher education. I am looking into online studies. I think it is very convenient especially in my case when I don't have much time to go to school after work. I also would like to not stress myself too much. I'm glad you're into finishing your degree, and that your online studies is working for you. That's very encouraging. Happy myLotting!

Hello! Long time no see. No as yet I haven't tried to get an online degree. But it is one of the options I am considering. I am expecting a new baby in December. When things settle down and we get into a routine I will look into it again. I do have some literature from different online schools. Financial aid would be at the top of my list. Whichever offers the best. Never taken that course.
